It was one of those God things!
Petra Goosen had lent my book “Transported by the Lion of Judah” to a family friend Peter, who was challenged by the contents, and wrote to tell me how he had appreciated the book. I responded saying I was coming to South Africa a few months later, and maybe we would meet at one of my meetings. The next day Petra wrote and said “If you are coming, please come and stay with us, and I’ll organize a meeting for you.”
We agreed some dates, so Petra set about looking for a place to hold a meeting, having no idea how many people would attend, but trusting the Lord to lead her to the right place. Petra went down a few blind alleys before being introduced to Tracy Tredrea who had just moved into what is now called “Faith Lifestyle Centre”. This conference centre was not yet open to the public, but when she heard my story from Petra, she and her husband agreed that we should be the first meeting. It was a huge success with 140 people from many different churches and races.
I was interviewed by Tracy just before the meeting. We had met for only a few minutes, but felt as though we had known each other for a long time.
That’s what the Lord does! Hallelujah!
